What is a Grid Connected Solar Rooftop System?

In Grid connected Solar Rooftop PV system the DC power generated from SPV panel is converted to AC power using power conditioning unit (Inverter). Generated Power by this system during the day time is utilized fully for powering loads and excess power is fed to the Grid. Grid connected Solar Rooftop system is operational so long as grid is available. In case, where solar power is not sufficient due to cloud cover, night time, etc., the loads are served by drawing power from the grid. The Grid is act as storage facility in this system.
